Mission Statement: "Sawabona" The ancient Zulu greeting meaning --
We see you.
I heard the word Sawabona quite a few years back and really appreciated the beauty and meaning behind the word. However, it is in these unique times we find ourselves in that it shines a light on the importance of seeing each other.
Our intention is to provide a safe and caring atmosphere where clients can experience various forms of healing - through Equine Therapy, Mindfulness, Counselling and Psychotherapy and most importantly be seen.
Everyone's experience is different, no matter how big or small, it is valid.
Every horse I have met have their own personalities just like people. The horses here have come together through different backgrounds - some have been with us over 20 years, some from the Racing industries, others from Rescue centres and 2 have been gifted.
Our horses and ponies each bring their own unique touch to clients experiences.
